Children’s Sight Week 2019

Over 500 kids received essential eye care during our 2018 Children’s Sight Week!

Start the School Year with Good Vision!

For children, proper eyesight is essential to doing well in school.  When a child is having trouble seeing, it can have a huge impact on their learning. Poor vision can prevent children from focusing on reading and seeing the board at school. Sight-impaired children are likely to grow into uneducated, sight-impaired adults, and the cycle of economic hardship continues. SEE and the Santa Barbara Vision Care Program aim to break this cycle to empower adults and children with sight.

When you’re checking off your child’s back to school list, don’t forget to fit in an eye exam with SEE’s SBVC. Your child’s eyes are rapidly changing, just like they are, so it’s important to check in on your child’s eye health with regular eye exams. Let’s start the school year off right!

This year, our Children’s Sight Week is taking place from August 12-16 to ensure that the children in our community are starting the school year with good vision!

Children in Santa Barbara County will receive free eye exams and vouchers for glasses from SEE International’s local Santa Barbara Vision Care Program. We are proud to partner with local Boys & Girls Clubs and Girls, Inc. for this event.
